Hard work but very rewarding in the end and an important part of where our food comes from. I've only ever butchered a couple of our male chickens and that took plenty of time so can imagine how much more work a whole inoshishi would take.

I watched this video a while back, makes it seem easy. Of course, watching video and doing something are vastly different.



I now know where all the different cuts of meat come from though. That is pretty neat.

I put a lot in the slow cooker and make "pulled boar" with BBQ sauce. Delicious!

I wonder if this thread is still active? I went fishing in the surf today and while fishing, wondered about rock and surf fishing on the Japanese coast.

It's active now :lol:

My father in law is a keen sea fisherman and he seems to do quite well, quite often when we visit he will have something freshly caught sliced up as sashimi. His favourite spots are around ports on the long concrete piers with lots of the concrete tetrapods, he catches quite a range of fish through the year as well as octopus and lobsters.

He has his own little work area in the house to make all sorts of different lures and stuff. Every time we go out for a family trip he will bundle a small rod and some tackle in the boot of the car 'just in case' :D

It is the summer holidays and it is unbearably hot. The sun is ferocious! It is also Christmas and the family is coming over for dinner. Luckily, they bring their own food but I still had to cook big! I made 5kg of roast potatoes and slow roasted a leg of lamb over open coals. A hot and sweaty business! Family and children are a blessing and a punishment.

Sounds like a fun day, my own plans for today include getting a haircut and having some root canal treatment :scared-yipes:

However once I get back from the dentist then will be back to tending my biochar burns.
